Deep Tissue Massage

Massage and Deep Tissue Massage

Pain is in itself a very useful and valuable resource although at the time we would all probably disagree. It tells us when something is generally wrong and we should all take heed of our bodies cries for help and pain is one of them… Although we would all like to ultimately increase our comfort, flexibility, and ease of movement and function, we also want to be aware of and pay attention to pain and its discomforts.

What is a deep tissue sports massage?

Deep tissue massage is a deeper form of massage which addresses structures within the muscle and facia that may be inhibited and is sometimes referred to as a Sports Massage simply because, generally, sportspeople receive more injuries through their activities. This does not exclude others from a ‘deep massage’ at all…

Deep tissue massage uses a variety of manual techniques which are designed to promote stress relief and relaxation.  So it’s not all painful as some would have us believe although it may be. This type of massage also uses techniques to mobilize various structures and to relieve pain and swelling.

A principal aim of deep tissue and sports massage is to promote functional independence, offer relief from pain and increase mobility and flexibility.
